Property Description

Welcome to The Rockstel Unawatuna!

Nestled away in a quiet, scenic spot surrounded by nature, The Rockstel Unawatuna marks the beginning of the journey for The Rockstel brand of hostels. Here you find a typical Sri Lankan country house with a twist, which has been curated and molded into a party hostel with a unique character, through painstaking attention to detail.

As you enter, you see the paved front garden, facing the colorful social area on the front patio, lined with the trademark seating arrangement of The Rockstel of having converted beds into sofas, with large colorful, comfy cusions to lean on. As you walk inside, you will see our friendly frontdesk staff at the reception, and a host of informative posters, a mini library, a beverage kiosk, and lots of colorful detailing on the walls. Once you complete your check in formalities, you will be led to one of four thematically designed rooms. The hostel has 3 ac rooms , and 1 room with individual fans. Two of the rooms have ensuite washrooms, and the other two share the two additional washrooms. All but one washroom comes with hot water showers. You will also be provided with a key to your individual locker, for your valuables.

While the hostel is a 20 minute walk from the main beach, it is quite centrally located from all four beaches in Unawatuna that travellers frequent, and we feel that if we were located closer to any one beach, we will be further from the rest. Having said that, its still a bit of a walk, so we have made scooter and bicycle rentals available for you through third party providers. If you want to be driven somewhere, our staff would be more than happy to organise a tuk tuk for you. If you are adventurous enough, you can even rent a tuk tuk and ride it yourself.

At The Rockstel Unawatuna, we take pride in being considered the best party hostel in Unawatuna, and to this end we organise events at the hostel every night, such as drinking games, quiz nights, and a host of other activities. We can guarantee you that you will make some memories and friends that you wouldn't forget for a life time.

Eagerly Awaiting to Welcome you at our party hostel in the jungle

    This is a cozy little hostel in the middle of nowhere, yet conveniently located to get to all the main hotspots in the area. This place comes alive in the night, with drinking games, music, and party vibes. Definitely not one to miss during your travels in the south of Sri Lanka. Check it out

    I really liked my stay here. Very comfy and clean hostel with a party vibe, but a lot of places to just chill out and unwind as well. The staff and the location makes this hostel special, not to mention the super comfy extra large bunk beds, ac rooms, and hot water. Definitely one of the best hostels I have stayed in

    This hostel is a little gem nestled away in the jungle, yet close enough to walk to the main unawatuna beach and the other beaches in the area. The staff is amazing, super friendly, and always there to help with anything you want. I am definitely coming back

    Loved this hostel! Staff were so helpful, yousuf greeted us and showed us around - also helped us with questions about where to go & how to travel to the next place. Only downside was it was very quiet, but this is due to low season. Quite a far walk from the beaches, but close to the main road. Overall great hostel and would recommend!

    Thought one to review. Visited the hostel super off season, so it was very quiet (dead). Our group were the only guests. The hostel is in the middle of nowhere. The rooms are nice and they have lockers. Staff is very nice. Common area and bathrooms could be cleaner. I paid for two nights but left after one. There was honestly nothing to do...

    I really didn't like that hostel. Everything is far away and you have to walk long distances to get somewhere. The staff was friendly, but there were only a few guests. The dorms are very small and uncomfortable. Can't recommend this hostel.
